Compared with a static HTML website where all content is on the actual site pages, any script-driven site stores its data inside a database. A few examples of this type of Internet sites are a WordPress blog or an OpenCart electronic commerce portal - in both cases, product listings, selling prices, blog posts, user responses and so on are collected in the database and not inside the actual script files. The more the data you include, the more substantial the database gets and if your website hosting package has some limit for the maximum size a database could have, your Internet site might not perform properly as soon as you reach that limit. The results can vary from not being able to add new content to improperly functioning website or even the website displaying nothing but error messages and not being available at all.
MySQL Database Storage in Shared Hosting
If you acquire a shared hosting plan from our company, we shall never limit the development of any MySQL-driven site which you host inside the account as our plans include unlimited database space for storage. Despite the fact that huge databases might affect the performance of a website no matter what type of hosting, we don't have a limit both for the total space all of the databases may take and for the total size of a single database. You can run an Internet store with as many items as you wish or a forum without worrying you will have to delete old posts or limit the amount of registered users you can have. Our Hepsia web hosting CP will also allow you to import or export databases inside your account regardless of their size. If you experience any difficulties with the latter, our technical support is available 24/7 to aid you.
MySQL Database Storage in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will not have any problems with the size of your MySQL databases if you have a semi-dedicated server through us since unlike many other web hosting service providers, we don't run everything on 1 web server. Instead, we work with a cloud platform, so an entire cluster of servers is dedicated to managing the databases of our clients. Whenever additional power or space is needed, we can easily attach more web servers or hard disks to the cluster, so the storage space is virtually infinite. With our services, you may expand your web sites or popularize them as much as you want without worrying that your MySQL databases will expand too much. Whatever the size of a specific database, you'll be able to export or import it easily using your hosting CP.
